A sleep retreat in the rugged hills of central Portugal, filled with sunshine, yoga, vegan food and kindness, promises a lasting cure for sleepless nights
I stepped into the glass-walled yoga shala and stared at the impressive rugged valley outside. It took me a second to realise I wasn’t alone. Vonetta Winter, teacher and co-owner of the centre, was sitting on a mat in cross-legged meditation – and I swear I could see a Ready Brek glow of peace around her. It was the start of a yoga and sleep retreat at Vale de Moses in the mountains of central Portugal, and I relaxed. This place had a good vibe. Maybe this really would be the final chapter in my 20-year story of insomnia.
